This exhibition is in the Town Hall and it is free. It gives an overview of the history and the present of Taipei City. It is not big but informative. At different places there is a QR code for more information. Some parts are interactive.

Good way to learn some Taiwan history. Some good exhibits and a good variety of well made videos in the rotating theatre. After your visit, you can go see the bazaar at B2 of Cityhall. That is also interesting.
